MAKING A MEANINGFUL DIFFERENCE THROUGH CAPITALISM, BUSINESS OWNERSHIP, ENTREPRENEURSHIP, ECONOMICS, AND SOME OTHER THINGS
Too often, business owners feel guilty about being in business or feel that they need to go outside of their business in order to do something “good for society.” Impact Capitalist is about how business ownership can produce both profit and benefit others. Free-market capitalism is about mutual benefit. Come join us in the celebration of business ownership!
STEALING CAPITALISM BACK!
The concept of Capitalism has been hijacked to mean many things. Unfortunately, none of these revisionist concepts are consistent with free-market capitalism. We believe that free market capitalism is the best available economic system for impact-oriented business owners to create impact and enjoy profit – a true win-win system. Thus, as capitalists are often accused of stealing from society, we are trying to steal back this concept.
We all “know” that being selfish is greedy and giving to others is good. Profit is selfish and is viewed as taking away from doing good for others. Yet, giving doesn’t always result in good and greed isn’t necessarily bad. We believe that Impact Capitalists can create both impact and profit, and these are achievable simultaneously. At the heart of the Impact Capitalist is a mindset that is much deeper than profit maximization.
THE RIGHTEOUS PATH
Like a surfer screaming “RIGHTEOUS!” on an epic wave, humans have in them some feeling that they were put on this earth for a purpose. The righteous path means the pursuit of something genuine, pure, sincere and honest.
Impact Capitalists make an impact and profit through acting on their righteous path.
CELEBRATING IMPACT CAPITALISTS
While not all business owners are Impact Capitalists, all Impact Capitalists are business owners. Impact Capitalists are making a positive impact on the people around them, every day. They may not be “solving world problems,” but they provide products and services in a manner that make life easier, more efficient, and, simply, better.
